How Do You Use Your Time?

How much time do you spend reading? Or engaged in a leisure activity? How many of us telecommute? And in what sectors is telecommuting more prevalent? Do men work longer hours than women? These and many other questions are answered in the 2015 American Time Use Survey that concerns itself with four major areas:  worklife; household activities; leisure activities; and household childcare.  Issued by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, this report is supplemented with very detailed data tables. For example, table 11 reveals that men on average  spend .31 hours of reading during weekend days; women come in at .38 hours. Obviously, they did not include us in the survey; we would have skewed it upwards!
